Plants have evolved two tiers of immune receptors to detect infections: cell surface-resident pattern recognition receptors (PRRs) that sense microbial signatures and intracellular nucleotide-binding domain leucine-rich repeat (NLR) proteins that recognize pathogen effectors. How PRRs and NLRs interconnect and activate the specific and overlapping plant immune responses remains elusive. A genetic screen for components controlling plant immunity identified ANXUR1 (ANX1), a malectin-like domain-containing receptor-like kinase, together with its homolog ANX2, as important negative regulators of both PRR- and NLR-mediated immunity in Arabidopsis thaliana...

The mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) inhibitor rapamycin (RAPA) has been shown to be an effective immunosuppressor in the management of acute graft-versus-host disease (aGVHD) after bone marrow transplantation. Myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs) also have a protective effect in aGVHD regulation. However, the relationship between RAPA and MDSCs in aGVHD models is unclear. Meanwhile, the effect of RAPA on different subgroups of MDSCs is also less well described. In this study, we demonstrate that in vivo administration of RAPA results in the expansion and functional enhancement of polymorphonuclear MDSCs (PMN-MDSCs) in a murine model of aGVHD...

Pure drug nanoparticles (NPs) represent a promising formulation for improved drug solubility and controlled dissolution velocity. However, limited absorption by the intestinal epithelium remains challenge to their clinical application, and little is known about how these NPs within the cells are transported. To improve cellular uptake and transport of pure nanodrug in cells, here, a lipid covered saquinavir (SQV) pure drug NP (Lipo@nanodrug) was designed by modifying a pure SQV NP (nanodrug) with a phospholipid bilayer...

Multiple primary malignant neoplasms (MPMNs) are rare malignant neoplasms that simultaneously or successively occur in the same patient as 2 or more primary malignancies. Currently, an increasing number of cases are being reported. In general, MPMNs more commonly occur as 2 solid tumors or 2 hematological malignancies. Cases of MPMN that involve a solid tumor and a hematological malignancy are rare. Here, we report a case of synchronous colorectal cancer (CRC) and multiple myeloma (MM) with chest wall involvement...

Boson sampling is strongly believed to be intractable for classical computers but solvable with photons in linear optics, which raises widespread concern as a rapid way to demonstrate the quantum supremacy. However, due to its solution is mathematically unverifiable, how to certify the experimental results becomes a major difficulty in the boson sampling experiment. Here, we develop a statistical analysis scheme to experimentally certify the collision-free boson sampling. Numerical simulations are performed to show the feasibility and practicability of our scheme, and the effects of realistic experimental conditions are also considered, demonstrating that our proposed scheme is experimentally friendly...

In the information age, it is important to protect the security and integrity of the information. As a result, the fluorescent ink as an antifake technology and the fingermark as an information carrier have aroused great interest. In this work, highly water-soluble lanthanide (Ln(3+) )-doped tetragonal phase (t-) LaVO4 nanoparticles (NPs) are successfully obtained via a simple, fast, and green microwave-assisted hydrothermal method. The average size of t-LaVO4 NPs is about 43 nm. The aqueous solutions of Ln(3+) -doped t-LaVO4 exhibit excellent fluorescence properties under ultraviolet light (UV) excitation (t-LaVO4 :10%Eu is bright red and t-LaVO4 :0...

Berberine (BBR) has previously been found to exert beneficial effects on renal injury in experimental rats. However, the mechanisms underlying these effects are not yet fully understood. Tumor necrosis factor (TNF) receptor-associated factor 5 (TRAF5) has been demonstrated to mediate the activation of nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB), which has been implicated in the pathogenesis of chronic kidney disease (CKD). The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of BBR on kidney injury and the activation of the NF-κB signaling pathway in mouse podocytes...

Advanced oxidation protein products (AOPPs) are independent risk factor for various cardiovascular diseases. Cardiomyocyte apoptosis has been implicated as an important mechanism in cardiac remodeling in chronic kidney disease (CKD). However, whether AOPPs affect cardiomyocyte apoptosis and subsequent cardiac remodeling in CKD is still not very clear. Here, we assessed the role of AOPPs in cardiomyocyte apoptosis in CKD. H9C2 rat cardiomyoblast cells were exposed to AOPPs. The apoptotic cells were determined by TUNEL assay...

The activation of NLR family pyrin domain containing 3 (NLRP3) inflammasome have been implicated in the initiation or progression of atherosclerosis. Recent research showed that irisin, a newly discovered adipomiokine, alleviates endothelial dysfunction in type 2 diabetes partially via reducing oxidative/nitrative stresses, suggesting that irisin may be a promising candidate for the treatment of vascular complications of diabetes. However, the association between irisin and NLRP3 inflammasome in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis remains unclear...

We previously demonstrated thatprenatal caffeine exposure (PCE) suppressed fetal adrenal steroidogenesis and resulted in developmental programming changes in offspring rats. However, whether these changes play a role in adrenal corticosterone synthesis under high-fat diet (HFD) and unpredictable chronic stress (UCS) remains unknown. In present study, rat model was established by PCE (120 mg/kg.d), and male offspring were provided normal diet or HFD after weaning. At postnatal week 21, several rats fed HFD were exposed to UCS for 3 weeks and sacrificed...

MicroRNAs(miRNA) are small non-coding RNAs that regulate the expression of protein coding genes by repressing translation of protein coding mRNA or enhancing mRNA degradation. Its functions have attracted more and more attention from the public. In recent years, the cross-border regulation of miRNA has become a new research direction, and provides a new perspective for people to comprehensively understand the functions of miRNA. Plant miRNA is usually methylated and not easy to degrade. According to our previous researches, there were abundant small RNAs in the decoction of dried liquorice, which provides a new way to study the mechanism of action of licorice...

A biomaterial combining fluorescent property with ability to induce osteogenesis can serve as an ideal multifunctional scaffold in bone tissue engineering. However, the frequently used fluorescent agents can only serve as imaging probes. The polymer or oligomer with a conjugated system containing nitrogen atoms will fulfill these criteria. In this study, a cyclo-trimer of acetonitrile is synthesized using a facile method, which is proved to be 4-amino-2,6-dimethylpyrimidine. The cyclo-trimer of acetonitrile demonstrates strong intrinsic photoluminescence and has the potential for in vivo imaging...

With the goal of combining the advantages of ball-milling and biochar technologies, a variety of ball-milled biochars (BM-biochars) were synthesized, characterized, and tested for nickel (Ni(II)) removal from aqueous solution. Ball milling increased only the external surface area of low temperature biochars, but still dramatically enhanced their ability to sorb aqueous Ni(II). For higher temperature biochars with relatively low surface area, ball milling increased both external and internal surface area. Measurements of pH, zeta potential, stability, and Boehm titration demonstrated that ball milling also added oxygen-containing functional groups (e...
